Totally "Turkified"


Our school is totally "turkified". There are unique turkeys everywhere! Big ones, ones in disguise, handprint turkeys, sparkly turkeys, turkey glyphs, turkeys with real feathers, and turkeys with paper feathers. My class has done the same little turkeys every year, and I will probably do them every year until I decide to retire--coffee filter turkeys! I just love these little guys! This year has been the first year I tried them with googly eyes, and they turned out just as precious as always. To make the coloful feathers, the kids color all over a coffee filter with washable markers, then dip the coffee filter into a cup of water and let the marker colors run together. Next week I'm going to have the kids tell me how they would cook a turkey and compile their answers into a turkey cook book...should be hilarious!

I just adore those turkeys. I was just saying today, to a fellow teacher, that I wanted to find another turkey idea. I just don't feel my students this year can handle paint just yet. I will just have to try these. Thanks for the wonderful ideas.

I used to have my students tell me their recipes for favorite thanksgiving foods and it was always hilarious! Can't wait to hear your students' recipes!
Oh, and these turkeys are way too cute!

I did these turkeys today! They were a huge hit! All of the first grade teachers at my school are doing them too, now! They are so cute and so fun for the kids! The parents will love to see them up at conferences! As always, thanks!

I'm writing because I run a sensory site and am looking for great ideas for Thanksgiving. And as any parent, we’re looking for terrific Thanksgiving crafts and ideas for kids with Sensory Processing Disorder and on the Autism Spectrum. Would you add a link to a craft idea or two on our blog? Here's the link to share and get more traffic to your site…
